I think y'all got it misconstrued. In that thread they were referring to the Brooklyn drill sound that belongs to the UK grime scene. That particular sound of drill is not as big outside of the Tri-State area.
I'm from Houston, and said outside of the joint Sauce Walka did while he was NY, you really ain't gonna find artists from here doing it, or people from here listening to it.
Just like when Screw was killing the 3-4 southern state area. Nobody was fukkin with it outside of that initially. When 05-07 happened, people recognized and went back to listen to the old shyt and that reached far and wide and end up jump starting the whole ASAP run
